A key reason to belong to the Chamber is to network with other businesses. The Business Networking Lunch is held on the third Tuesday of the month, the Network Plus Breakfast is held on the last Friday of the month. Members are able to network with the other members seated at their table, as well as give a 10 second “pop-up” ad for their businesses to the entire room. At the monthly luncheons, new members are recognized and given their membership plaques, and group photos are taken for publication in our monthly e-newsletter. We also offer quarterly members-only breakfasts with other local Chambers in the San Fernando Valley. Businesses can extend their exposure by sponsoring a lunch. As a sponsor, you have the opportunity to pass out information about your business and to address the guests at the front of the room.
In addition, we offer informal Mixers where members can meet each other in warm and inviting social settings. There is no additional cost to host a Mixer however, as host it is appropriate to serve hors d’oeuvres and some type of beverage. We also offer a quarterly Mixer with other local chambers. Check the Chamber Calendar for upcoming events.
The Chamber also assists members with Ribbon Cuttings, Grand Opening and Re-Opening Ceremonies. These are all great ways to meet other members and showcase your business. Call the Chamber office to check availability and to schedule.
